De Blasio's 2018 Salary Increase Amount Larger Than Annual Minimum Wage
New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio will kick off 2018 with a roughly 15 percent salary increase.
The progressive Democrat, who currently makes $225,000 per year, will be sworn in to his second term on January 1.
Under legislation authorized by the mayor in 2016, he will see a $33,750 increase to $258,750 per year.
De Blasio's pay hike alone is more than the annual salary of a minimum-wage worker in the city, the New York Post reported.
On "Fox & Friends," Rachel Campos-Duffy pointed out the disparity between de Blasio's pay schedule and that of his predecessor.
Former Republican-turned-Independent Mayor Michael Bloomberg took only $1 per year. Bloomberg, however, was a billionaire businessman prior to taking office.
